Why not put it in an existing desktop pc as a slave. You can have 4 PATA drives in a system

I'd suggest putting it on the secondary channel so it has less chance of trying to boot from it

Let us know how you go

hard drive

You can get an adapter for lappy hard drives so you can connect a molex (power) and parallel ATA cable to it and stick it in a desktop pc. you can then haul the data over and dispose of the faulty drive and get a new one

You will obviously need to open your laptop for this and I take no responsibility for any damage you cause to your laptop if you do this yourself and screw up but it's what needs to happen.

Peace
